– Can a ketogenic diet help someone who has had their lap band taken out? What can be done to normalize the body’s hormone levels?
Hi Jimmy and The Doc,
I just came across your Keto Talk podcast and thought I would reach out to you for advice about the lap band I had removed due to erosion (hole in the stomach). I was very sad to let go of it. In my research on the effects of the lap band had on my body and eating so very little for so long, I suspect that it has taken a toll on my body and I’m now struggling to lose weight. When I consulted a medical weight loss clinic, they put me on a 1200 calorie, 120g carb diet and I gained weight in the two weeks I did it. That’s what led me to the ketogenic diet to help stave off the weight gain. Do you have any clinical experience or know about any research that looks at the use of keto for former lap banders looking for a way to keep their weight under control? I had my hormones tested and my testosterone came back at zero. I suspect having the lap band decreased my T levels from the stress it put my body through. So if the lap band changed my body’s hormone levels, what else has it changed? Is that why I’m struggling to lose weight like everyone else can? How do I figure out what I need to do since we are not all the same.
Thanks so much for your help!
1. Why would blood sugar levels go up when taking long lasting insulin while eating keto?
I am currently in the process of reading Keto Clarity and have begun the switch over to burning fat instead of sugar. I am a Type 2 diabetic and inject insulin four times a day. Recently I went on a road trip and forgot to bring my insulin. When I got back home, I checked my blood sugar and saw the best reading I have had in over six months. But here’s where it gets weird—when I took my long lasting insulin, the next day my glucose numbers were higher again. Why in the world would my blood sugar go up when taking insulin while eating a ketogenic diet? Any insights you have on this would be awesome.
2. Could the joint pain in my knees be brought on simply by being in a state of nutritional ketosis?
Hello Jimmy and Adam,
I am a big fan of your podcast and have been keto for six months losing around 60 pounds. I’m now in the best shape of my life at the age of 30 and feel great with lots of energy and I actually love working out now. However, I’ve noticed I’m dealing with a lot more joint pain now than I did before eating ketogenic, especially in my knees. I thought things would improve now that I’ve taken off some extra weight. I am definitely in ketosis when I test for them and I’m trying to avoid what my mother just went through with a double knee replacement. I feel pain in the joints but don’t have any noticeable inflammation. Is being in ketosis causing this to happen?
Thank you so much for your help.

3. Does a ketogenic diet lead to abnormally high liver function test results? Is my liver overstressed by having to metabolize the extra dietary fat?
Hi Jimmy and The Doc,
A few years back, I had abnormally high liver function test results and my primary care physician was concerned that my numbers got worse because of keto. My AST and ALT were around 100 and they’re supposed to be no higher than 37. At the time she advised me to start eating more carbs and all my numbers that were bad came within the normal range. I started keto and fasting again in 2016 and lost 64 pounds after my third pregnancy. I’m concerned when I go back to see my doctor next month that my liver tests will be bad again. I’m hypothyroid, but I don’t have any known liver or gallbladder issues. Is it possible my liver was overstressed by having to metabolize the extra fat in my ketogenic diet? If so, then does that mean keto isn’t right for me? I sure hope not because I feel so fantastic in ketosis.
Thanks for any insight about this and thank you for all you both do!

– Should I strive to have higher levels of blood ketones if I seem to be thriving in my mental clarity and energy when I am barely in ketosis?
Hey Jimmy and Adam,
I’ve been doing a ketogenic diet for three months as a physically active 27-year old man with 10% body fat. I’ve noticed that I feel so much better when I’m barely in ketosis at around 0.5 mmol—that’s my sweet spot where I have better mental clarity and energy. Anytime I’ve tried pushing blood ketones up by moderating protein more, my ketones rise to 2.0-5.0 mmol, but I don’t feel quite the same mental benefits as I do in the lower level of ketosis. So my question for you guys is this—should I strive for higher ketones and hope these kick in at some point to give me the benefits I desire or should I listen to my body and return to the lower level where I seem to thrive?
By the way, you’ll find it interesting that I seem to tolerate more carbohydrates in my diet than more protein. I’ve been able to eat as much as 50g carbs (10% of my caloric intake) without every impacting my ketosis levels while eating just 2% more protein in my diet will kick me out of ketosis completely. Fascinating! I don’t take any supplements and don’t use any sweeteners at all. I’ve yet to find anyone else dealing with this issue, so I’d love to hear an explanation of what might be going on.
Thanks in advance!
